I think this is a great show. What an accomplishment! Playing Lawnboy in its entirety. They pretty much nailed everything. My one criticism
of this show is the guitar tone. It sounded horrible. For me it definitely took away from the greatness of the playing and the show as a whole.

Just hearing this show for 10 minutes instantly turned me into a Breakfast fan.

To be able to play Lawn Boy so well knowing there was a really good chance that one of the guys who wrote it would be there watching really says a lot about the balls and talent they have. And to be able to play it as well as they did with only a few minor mistakes here and there well that definitely should show everyone just how god damn good they are...

This show will go down in Breakfast history as one of their most legendary shows (right up there w/ the puppethouse). I mean Mr. Mike Gordon himself sat in.

Subject: Phish for Breakfast
Though I gotta say it is weird hearing another band playing Phish (and I'm a huge fan of the Breakfast), they pulled it off quite well. I don't think any other band could do this PERIOD. Lawn Boy has some of the hardest full band synchronizations and these guys made it sound easy. Reba especially, wow.

yea you gotta give it to the breakfast for having some of the largest testicles on the scene right now.

the show is pretty damn tight. Besides the obvious lawn boy cover the 'queeb and gladys are straight up nasty

Only one band ill enough and ballsy enough to do something like this unannounced, in burlington on Halloween weekend with mike gordon in the house and pull it off without a hitch!!!

Definitely check out other recent recordings from these guys (there are lots available), but more..nay MOST importantly.....

GO SEE THEM LIVE!!!!!!!!!!

Every show is an adventure! Great crowds and stellar music.

One of the best Breakfast shows I've ever seen. They really nail Lawn Boy.... like they've been playing it for years. The originals are all excellent as well. Definitely recommend downloading this!!!
